Dan Healy, or God? Are they not one and the same?


You are so right - the marketing dept. really are missing a trick if they're not tuning in to this place - cut through the occasional outbreak of foolishne..., ahem spirited debating on diverse topics, and you'll find the most passionate, knowledgeable and vociferous bunch of Grateful Dead true believers that you could ever hope to meet.

"Dan Healy, God [Jerry...right?]...one and the same"

Ah, add in Charlie Miller and we have the holy trinity: the producer, the mixer, and the prophet...

I'm going to say it again:

Traditional religion (choose almost any example) is mostly not what it's supposed to be or was to the founders.

For example, Jesus and Christianity. But you can find much of his original "tradition" if you try.

One thing I thought was really cool, was that you could leave backpacks in a pile and get it at the end of the show it was still there untouched. I was deeply cynical when I first went to shows, my brother robbed at a concurrent Rolling Stones show, and even this little GD moment helped remove the rust of my heart a bit.

The band also gave extra at lower prices, like a bag check truck outside the show and free/workfare tickets for many special cases. And Bill Graham himself cleaned up after shows as an example.

Definitely there was money made, and lots of it, but it wasn't imperial.
